Summertime Style

What to wear for the warm weather!  I want to help you with this, you might have it already in your closet, or you need just to add a couple of new items to pull it all together.

The three elements that are important:




 You want to look for fabric that has movement & stretch also that will breath. Find a style that suits your body type and shows some skin.  Could just be a shoulder or your legs just enough to make you feel sexy and that your not completely covered up in the summer.

In the picture that  I will be posting I'm wearing a  "Sexy Poncho" and very light weight printed roll down pants.  It has all the elements, plus I can take the pieces and use them for other items in my closet.  I feel great when I go out and so very comfortable!

If you have any questions or need advice on what goes together in your closest, you can send us pictures and we will be happy to guide you .

We are here to help you and design for you, thats what we love to do...........


Saying yes!

It's always great to say yes for new creative designs.  You don't think about if you can do it, you don't question  yourself and your capabilities .

Steven and I were approached by the manager of Richie Sambora and asked if we do guitar straps, we were thrilled  that she approached us and of course we said "Yes".

It took some time to finally meet with Richie in his home, learn about him and his sense of style, he was  completely open for us to design for him.  We  knew we were the ones for the job, where  we could use  our collective creativity and go for it.

We completed the project  for Richie as well as other bandmates and delivered it to him in person.  His response was one that we were hoping for, Richie loved them !  

What made this such a great experience for all of us is that we came from a place where passion, talent and being able to access what was right for our customer.......sometimes a lost art.  

Richie and Bon Jovi was honored at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a well deserved award.   I will show you a photo of Richie wearing one of our designs.

We will say yes to you  and would love to create a special design...... this is what we love to do!

What is fashion? What is a trend? Will it go out of style?

You don't need to worry about any of it - it's all in the attitude and if it's right for you.  When you wear a item of clothing or accessories, how does it make you feel, and does it fit into your lifestyle and wardrobe .  

That's what we love to do here at V&G - we open up the dialogue.  Let's talk about what you'd like in your wardrobe.  We'll give you tips & suggestions in the shop but also through our blog. 

You can send us pictures and we'll help you decide how to put it together or create an accessory that makes that outfit your favorite.  CLICK HERE to schedule your first appointment.

Here's an example:  Below you'll see that I'm wearing jeans that were becoming too distressed for me to wear... so, what's the solution?  We designed a great leather patch with studding and now they're my favorite pair.  Is it in fashion, it is for me... Be able to to say YES about everything you wear.

We'll give you very helpful tips and customize your fashion...   Gayle & Steven
